April 13, 2017 – April 19, 2017 After last week’s disappointment from my weigh in, this week was completely different. A complete shift in my mindset. I spent the majority of my week making sure I got my food in on budget. I knew that lunch on Sunday, which was Easter, was going to be […]

I decided to release it anyway to be open and honest. This may also help someone else going through the same struggles. February 2016 was a really […]


In my last blog post, How We Ate Healthy While Losing 500 Pounds in 2 Years, I talked about the nutrition portion of our diet when we first started losing weight. In this blog post, I want to discuss how I exercised while losing 300 pounds in 2 years. I have to admit that both […]
